Staff at Specsavers in Ammanford were star-struck when Welsh rugby legend, Shane Williams, visited the store for an eye test.

Sporting star

The sporting star, who was part of the Welsh squad for more than a decade and played for Neath and Ospreys at club level, visited the Quay Street opticians for a sight test with optometrist Richard Davies.

Setting an example

Store director, Kevin McCarthy, said: ‘Having started his career at Amman United RFC, just a few miles away from our store, we’re glad that Shane has stayed local and decided to visit us for an eye test.

‘Ensuring your eyes are in good condition is just as important as other aspects of your health routine and, even though Shane isn’t competing at an international level anymore, it’s good to see that he is still taking his eye health seriously.

‘We advise that everyone has a sight test every two years and hope that Shane’s visit will encourage those hadn’t considered it to call in to the store or call us.’
